It seems to becoming harder to find netbook size laptops to use with the Kobuki base and so I’m looking into using the Intel NUC (e.g. NUC6i5SYH). I want fully autonomous operation where the Kobuki can dock and charge its batteries and the PC, so I wondered if anyone was aware of a power solution e.g. external battery that can connect to the Kobuki 19v output AND will allow the NUC to get a reading of the battery level e.g. via USB. Alternatively, is it possible to use a dc-dc converter with one of the other Kobuki power outputs (e.g. 12v 5A) to power the NUC?
Or if anyone knows of a good choice of small laptop to use then that might be preferable.
